Removing front turning lenses

So I should be able to put a screw driver in through the body panel hole to loosen the front turn signal lights. Problem is that, through that hole there isn't a screw, but an adjustment knob, like the one used to aim your headlights.

How do I take these puppies out?

Also, I've seen a the 'snap in' and 'screw in' housing on the JleviSW - does that mean mine are snap-in if there's no screw?

If you have a 1999-2001 Sedan, you do not have screw in types. You have a push in type whereby you use a flat head through that hole to push down on a tab and slide out the clear.

If you have a 2002-2005 sedan, you have screw in style turn signals and need to insert a phillips head screw driver in that hole to loosen the screw and slide out the turn signal

Perfect - that's the answer! Thanks!

So what are those adjustment knobs for just under the tabs?
